A Knitted Network of DNA
A Knitted Network of DNA: Following mitosis, a protein called BAF cross-bridges DNA strands within a knitted network of DNA to form a single nucleus.

A Knitted Network of DNA

During division, cells disassemble their nucleus and release many independent chromosomes - but how are all those chromosomes enclosed in a single nucleus after mitosis? The protein BAF cross-bridges DNA…

A Dynamic ESCRT for Splitting Membranes

I'm so excited to share a drawing I made for my own paper recently published in Nature Cell Biology!  This artwork illustrates the dynamics of a protein machinery for splitting membranes. This machinery,…
